    Only buy a created store bought holiday if you absolutely cannot boil water. You will get better every year if you start now with a small turkey. It's really easy. Forget all the fancy receipes and just roast a turkey with some chopped garlic and onion with broth in the pan. Follow the directions on the bag. You can do it. My mother was a terrible cook growing up. Sorry Mom! Everything was overcooked and dry! But I got my first Betty Crocker receipe book and went from there. Buy the other stuff frozen or canned, you can say you made the entire meal. And, ask the new hubby for help, give him three items to be responsible for, even if it's setting the table and cleaning the bathroom for the company! you can do it. icon_lol.gif

    Thank you! That is my plan. I plan on making the cheesecakes, broccoli casserole and stuffing the day before and then putting it all in the oven before we leave. As for the turkey...I have a turkey roaster that I have had for almost two years and never used. I have let the family use it in the past to cook the holiday meals, but I have never used it myself. Since my honey works until around 2am, when she gets off I will put the turkey in the roaster and let it do its thing. Im thinking of injecting it with some kind of seasonings, and my father (who is a chef) told me to lift the skin of the turkey before I cook it and add some EVOO and seasonings. Im actually getting excited. I think we are going to get the grocery shopping done this evening!!

    I highly recommend this turkey method: Uncle Bill's Method for Cooking Turkey
    It sounds strange- but the turkey was terrific!

    Thankgiving has always been a snap for me but I've become gluten intolerant, so this year will be a bit of a challenge for this gourmet! I'm splurging and getting a pasture raised turkey, smoking it and then finish it off in the oven. Sausage, apple & corn stuffing. Green bean casserole made gluten free of course. And I think I'll try Guy's stuffed sweet potatoes with the brown sugar and pecans. Gluten free pecan pie for dessert! Wish me luck! icon_cool.gif

    we start out with snacks: assorted cheeses and meats
    then we have mini franks in real pastry. The next plate is broiled shrimp with garlic.
    Then we jump to dinner: turkey with giblet gravy.
    sausage stuffing, creamed onions, whipped sweet potatoes with crumble topping, garlic asparagus, and
    sometimes cauliflower au gratin. dessert is pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream and/ or apple pie with ice cream.
    Next day, turkey dinner again. Third day is club sandwiches overloaded with turkey and bacon.

    Thank you so much that sounds great! I am definitely going to try that. I will take all the advice anyone wants to offer. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a bad cook, I've just never cooked for this many people.

    Best of luck! The food is good, but I think it is the company that really counts. Enjoy them all and have a wonderful day.

    The most important part of my family's Thanksgiving is that everyone helps.
    Bob and Linda are the hosts.
    To start, Mara will bring pirogs, a Latvian treat, ham, onion and bacon cooked
    then stuffed into a homemade bread dough and baked, YUM
    Linda will have fresh veggies and dips, olives and pickles. Adam and Tangie will bring the best mashed potatoes. I make the turkey, stuffing and gravy. Gwen and James will bring homemade sweets. Linda's Mom will bring some kind of casserole or two or three.Bob will make an oyster stuffing and some roasted root vegetables.
    There will be wine and beer, and great conversations. We all then clean up
    and back to the table for more talk and nibbles.

    I would absolutely do it! My son lives in NYC and we were thinking about it. And as a former NY resident, we didn't have such options years ago. Go for it! This year everyone is coming to PA to celebrate. I even considered getting Wegman's prepared TG meal, but instead we're cutting back. I'll make a turkey breast as only 2 of us will be eating turkey. The others are vegetarians. Side dishes are easy and we're cutting back on how many we cook. Good luck and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. icon_biggrin.gif
